Radio legend to retire

Posted:

DUBUQUE (KWWL) -- An eastern Iowa radio legend is retiring after 50 years on the air.

Paul Hemmer will broadcast his last program next Friday morning on KGRR 97.3 FM, the independent Dubuque station he founded 15 years ago.

65 year-old Hemmer wrote on the station's website, "getting up at 4:30 AM has become more difficult. It's time to let another generation take over."
